Engaging hearts and minds.


My specialty is leading teams, and working with them, to achieve impact through purpose-driven strategy, market-focused messaging, and powerful content. Over two decades in communications, public relations, and strategy development, I’ve served as executive, staffer, consultant, and board director.

The son of a Chicago investigative journalist and press secretary, I grew up in the press room, engaged in robust dinner table debates, and falling asleep to the sound of a manual typewriter. This instilled in me endless curiosity, a desire for purpose-driven work, and a love of compelling communications.
